Eastport and Passamaquoddy Bay
This landscape by Victor de Grailly was painted after a similar piece by William Henry Bartlett. De Grailly's painting captures a clear day in Eastport, Maine on the Passamaquoddy Bay, which is on the border between Maine and New Brunswick, Canada. The painting looks down upon the bay and the cliffs, hillsides, and mountains surrounding the bay. A few well-dressed people are visible in the foreground, including a fisherman, while several ships sail on the bay. De Grailly was a French landscape artist who studied under Jean-Victor Bertin and exhibited in Paris.
